Exodus 19:14-25

Kristine has often imagined what it would be like to receive an invitation to meet the Queen of England. In this unlikely event, she’s sure she would spend a great deal of time and thought, making sure that her outfit was just right, meticulously putting everything together, down to hair and makeup. It would be easy to make sure each part of her “outside” was prepared. Many of us may find ourselves striving for good outward appearances. A good job, a nice house, and the latest trendy clothing all vie for our attention as we try to present ourselves the best way we can.

Our relationship with God is about so much more than how we appear on the outside. Moses was intentional to consecrate the Israelites. He instructed them to wash their clothes, yes, but consecration meant that the Israelites gave every part of themselves, inside and out, to the good things of God. We, too, must dedicate our hearts, our thoughts, our motives, our hopes, our dreams, and so much more to the ways of God.

How have you focused on outward appearance in your life? What areas of your life do you need to give fully to God today?
